To produce immunologically and biologically active recombinant striped bass GtH-I and GtH-II, and to develop an enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA) for striped bass GtH-I. To use and optimize a novel and generic recombinant DNA approach for expressing biologically and immunologically active gonadotropins of fish, in view of enabling studies on their reproductive endocrinology.
